I know the Trump thread was sunk. I know people are shit sick of hearing about Trump...oversaturation etc...but without any drama, what we are witnessing is the rise of fascism in plain sight. Seperating children from parents. Withdrawing the US from the UN council for human rights. Just the latest episodes in the Trump saga. History will not judge Trump kindly or the Republican party who enabled him. The millions who Trump can rely on as his "base" frighten me . They should frighten everyone. Putting ourselves in the the ostrich situation wont make trump go away....neither will sinking threads. The issues are real. The threats are real.
The UK should stop Trump's State Visit in protest.
I hope the many movements in the US can result in trump being voted out in 2020 ( unless he can be impeached before then). Even in 2 years the damage he has done on a global scale is immense. He has empowered racists, homophobes and bigots. He has sown the seed of doubt with "fake news" and "alternative facts". He is a pathological liar.
If people thought he was a novelty and it would soon be over...think again. Trump is attempting a fascist/ authoritarian rise. We need to observe this time carefully as the beginning of it all.
No Trump. No KKK. No fascist USA.
Sink the thread? If you want.
Delete the post? If you want.
Say you are sick about hearing of Trump? If you want.....but what is happening is very real and happening in our time, in plain sight. Even Hitler wasn't as blatant right at the beginning.
This is my last post on NB.
I wish everybody happiness and health and hopefully we will see the end to this "trump chapter" in our history.
